Gables Dogs and Cats Home

Gables Dogs & Cats Home is a non-euthanasia rescue and rehoming centre that has been helping the region’s unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats since 1907. We take in and care for up to 1000 dogs and cats every year. We either rehome them or re-unite them with their owners if they are lost. On a daily basis we care for around 80 dogs and over 100 cats, which is a lot for our staff and volunteers to look after. The majority of our animals are unwanted pets, given up by their owners for numerous reasons.

We take in stray and lost cats that are found wandering the streets, some in a very poor condition and in desperate need of help, and unclaimed stray dogs from local councils.

We also take animals from the RSPCA that have sadly been neglected and abused by their owners or injured in road traffic accidents.

We provide a temporary boarding service for local councils, taking care of dogs and cats for people in difficult situations, until their owners are in a position to reclaim them. Sometimes they are signed over to our care once it is established the owner is unable to provide for them anymore.

Most of our animals are rehomed within a few weeks but some dogs and cats stay in our care much longer than others. It can just be a case of being overlooked, disability, or appearance, but more commonly it is because they have specialised behavioural needs that a lot of people don’t have the time for or experience to cope with.

We never put a healthy animal to sleep and never give up hope of finding them a new loving home.
